WLS is dedicated to helping both individuals and organizations develop strategies to be successful.­­SOLUTIONS LIE WITHIN!­ Solutions to most problems lie within either the individual or the organization itself. Sometimes those entities need a little help in finding solutions and refining them into something practical and useable.

­

The core of WLS service is anchored by two powerful strategies;­Choice Theory/Reality Therapy and Guided Dialogue.­Choice Theory/Reality Therapy, based on the work of Dr. William Glasser MD, is both a philosophy and a strategy aimed at building personal responsibility and stronger interpersonal relationships.­­Guided Dialogue, based on the work of­ Dr. Alexander Christakis PhD, focuses on the dynamics of the group process promoting the democratic exchange of ideas, building­ deeper understanding of those ideas and the building of coherent long term strategic plansIndividually these two strategies are incredibly powerful having stood the tests of time and professional scrutiny.­ When put together these two strategies work hand in hand with one another forming a synchronicity that is unparalleled.­ Even though individuals and groups may have similar needs the both need different approaches to solving their problems.­Choice Theory/Reality Therapy­addresses the individual while­Guided Dialogue­addresses group issues.

­

Now for a final word about "Strategists".­ In the bio about the WLS founder no one else is listed! At the moment there is only one (1) Strategist. However, in the words of Dr. Glasser,­"relationships are everything."­Both­Choice Theory­and­Guided Dialogue­are supported by networks of hundreds of practitioners who can be tapped to help solve problems. Over many years of practicing in public and private venues I have developed professional relationships with many people. If I do not know an answer I will admit it and find someone who does know the answer.
